New Threats Against Parish Pig Rassle

By Paul Evansen. CREATED Aug 8, 2014

 Stephensville--  New online threats to St. Patrick's Parish in Stephensville has prompted the Outagamie County Sheriff's Department to react.

"What they're doing is not illegal" said Captain Mike Jobe. "We'll be monitoring the situation and will be ready to step in if tensions rise during the Sunday event."

  The annual pig rassle has part of the parish's annual fundraiser for decades.

  A petition started by Global Conversation Group of Watertown has garnered over 48,000 signatures in hopes the event will be cancelled permanently.
